    "As the name implies, this is a superior Chorizo. The fat to lean ratio is perfect. The texture is firm, but not rock hard. It slices beautifully for tapas, quesadillas, or tortas. Nice blend of spices, with the paprika not overwhelming the sausage. "

    "I'm surprised by all the good reviews. I was disappointed with this chorizo; it doesn't even come close to chorizo in Spain. Next time I'll spend the extra $3 to try a cantipalo that's made in Spain."

    "Delicioso! This is a simple recipe; yet so delicious I just invited friends over to try it. Perfect balance of spices, salt, meat, fat, and smokiness. Well dried and hard as it should be. The best Cantimpalo I have had in a long time. This I love with red wine, crusty bread, and cured Spanish cheese."
